There's No Place Like Garth's Home

Trisha and Garth
Back by popular demand, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are announcing a new hour-long prime-time music special.

"Garth & Trisha Live!" will debut Wednesday at 9 p.m. (live ET, delayed PT) on CBS. The country music couple are scheduled to perform from their home recording studio for viewers looking for an escape from coronavirus quarantine stress. Fans can learn how to make song requests during Brooks' Facebook Live show Monday .

"They will bring their unique blend of casual style, remarkable chemistry and shared love of music to a television audience, emphasizing the message that 'we’re all in this together,' " according to a news release.

The special will be filmed with a "minimal crew practicing social distancing and will be filmed with extensive safety precautions in place," the release added.

The couple was inspired to create the special after the success of their show last Monday, which crashed Facebook Live with 3.4 million viewers.

“We’re seeing how big things can be when we all do them as one. In addition to the special, we and CBS will donate $1 million to charities to be determined, combating the COVID-19 virus,” Brooks and Yearwood said in a joint statement.
